“Hope in the Dark” is Jeremy’s first book and was photographed on his first trip overseas to Africa in 2005. Thirty years ago, AIDS was unknown in sub-Saharan Africa. Today it’s overwhelmingly the continent’s biggest killer. In Hope in the Dark, Jeremy documents the hope and pain of Africa’s AIDS generation – a generation beset by poverty and fear, a generation in which children in some countries are more likely to die of AIDS than not. But despite the sickening odds, Cowart captures brief glimpses of beauty, optimism and joy as he makes his way across the continent. Through this collection of startling, remarkable images, his lens uncovers not just the magnitude of the problem, but also the places where God is undeniably present in the midst of it.
